To Josie

"Look not mournfully into the past. It comes not back again. Wisely improve the present. It is thine. Go forth to meet the shadowy future, without fear."
 
Henry Wadsworth Longfellow

 

Ophelia Framed Art Print by John William Waterhouse
 
                   Ophelia- John Waterhouse
 
 
To Josie
        (By Dee)
 
Noble gestures unsung
Silent desperation
Veiled with a smile
 
Noble intent gone awry
Strength drained
Heart withered and dry
 
Sleepless nights
Nary a dry eye
Cannot bring back time
 
Move on, my child
Up ahead, he is waiting
In shiny armor plating

Pain, but there is a light ahead.  Fear of what was, what is and what will be.  I do believe that at some point we have all experienced these things.  I only wish someone was able to point me in a direction in such a loving and poetic way.  :)

Beautious!
